Guest Speaker: Christine Walters, J.D., MAS, SHRM-SCP, SPHR
In the last five years, the number of states that have legalized adult, recreational use of marijuana has nearly tripled.
Add to that, states and local jurisdictions enacting laws restricting or limiting when, how and for whom employers may conduct related testing or inquiries.
All this leaves employers pondering how to provide and enforce a safe workplace, require that employees be fit-for-duty, and navigate conflicting federal, state and local mandates.
Ignite Career Center of JCS invites employers and HR professionals to attend this interactive session as we review the latest trends, statistics, and challenges impacting employment practices and get guidance regarding proactive practices.
This free program has been pre-approved by HRCI and SHRM for 1.0 continuing education credit.
